2018’s Electronic Entertainment Expo: Best in Show?

Another E3 has come and gone with surprising annoucements, reveals, and more games to be looking forward to later this year and the following year, it’s that time again to discuss which game truly stood and which conference takes the gold.


At this year’s E3, many games were shown off that grabbed our attention, and our wallets, although only a handful of titles truly deserved it.

Ever since it’s announcement at the Sony Press Conference last year, Insomniac’s Spider-man is a prime example of how to treat a lisence game and bring life to a fan-favorite hero. Insomniac Games is best known for popular titles like Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Spyro. It was a surprise to see this company taking on a Spider-man game, but this journalist has faith in them.

The gameplay shown at Sony’s 2018 E3 press conference showed off Spider-man entering a high protected prison facility on a helicopter before getting shot down by Electro. After this happens, Spider-man finds himself inside the prison fighting his way past waves of enemies and finally web-swinging his way towards Electro. As he makes his way there, Spider-man is confronted by a handful of villians known as the ‘Sinister Six’ which consists of, Electro, Rhino, Shocker, Vulture, Scorpion, and a mysterious villian just before the demonstration ended.

Thus, this journalist is going with Insomniac Game’s very own, Spider-man as the best in show.

 

Best Confernece of E3?

This often a difficult question for most to answer as everyone is surely entitled to their own opionion and doesn’t wanna trash someone else’s. In this case, I’ll be writing about which confernece was really enjoyable.

Microsoft’s conference did deliver in annoucning 50 game titles and while we did a wide variety of games coming to the Xbox One exclusively and titles for multiple systems, the big downfall of the conference was the lack of discussing those annoucned to some extent. While the Sony Press Conference on the other hand focused on a few games to show off and present exciting new gameplay. Finally, fans of Naughty Dog’s Last of Us Part 2 were finally shown off gameplay and story, which is something many fans looked forward to see. From there we were presented a look at gameplay from Death Strading, a new title from Kojima. It showed off a bunch of exploring and quitely sneaking past enemies.

Though it’s only fair to give it to a studio from back  home and that is Bethesda Studios. Bethesda Studios is best known for it’s Fallout and Elder Scrolls series. The latter of which fans were rejoiced to hear of Elder Scrolls Six being in development. But the star of the show was Todd Howard presenting fans with a look into the world of Fallout 76.

Bethesda Studios continues to innovate the gaming world with new and exciting games, including a new franhise in Starfield. This company is gonna continue bringing story and action pack games to life.
